Acupuncture for Shoulder Pain
For treatment of pain conditions, acupuncture
is our primary treatment approach. Acupuncture is a safe, effective,
and generally painless therapy which can often be highly effective in
treatment of shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can arise from conditions
affecting the muscles, tendons, and joint. Our care is often very
helpful in the healing stage after an injury, and during a flare-up of
chronic pain conditions affecting the shoulder.
From an acupuncturist's perspective, pain can be caused by a blockage in
the body's vital energy. Acupuncture provides relief from pain by
clearing blockages and promoting the smooth flow of this energy. As that
happens, the circulation improves and the muscles relax, which makes it
Some types of shoulder pain respond very quickly to treatment or heal
without treatment. Some injuries to the rotator cuff can result in
chronic pain. This pain is not always in the area of the shoulder, but
may be located in the upper back or other muscles surrounding the
shoulder. In some of these cases, the muscle may not heal fully without
surgery. In these cases, acupuncture is often helpful in reducing pain
for between 1 and 6 weeks after each session, and it may also be helpful
during the recovery period from surgery.
Our patients have included marathon runners, dancers, triathlon athletes, olympic and professional athletes, bodybuilders, and
people of all ages with minor or major aches and pains.
